Boston’s Joseph and Clementine Langone Park was due for a major overhaul since opening in 1973. The architects at Weston and Sampson specified Hollaender’s Interna-Rail® system for the makeover. Using nearly 700 linear feet of Hollaender’s aluminum three-line rail layout with wire mesh infill panels, the railing design would ensure the guardrail along the Boston Harborwalk was up to present-day codes while allowing visitors to enjoy the amazing views of the city’s waterfront and Charlestown Bridge.

The project expanded recreational opportunities by raising the athletic fields and walkways out of the flood zone. The Harborwalk connects residents and visitors to over forty parks, a dozen museums, seven beaches, and hundreds of restaurants and stores. Installation was completed by longtime Hollaender partner, Pleasant Mount Welding located in Carbondale, Pennsylvania.
